"Ninety seconds into the first track 'Beyond Repair' two of the first things crossing your mind is:
1) How undeniably truthful and honest the music sounds, and 2) why the heck haven’t I heard of Andreas before?" Trace Whittaker - www.skopemag.com
This is as apt a description of the Andreas experience as you're likely to find.
This is a band dedicated to winning you over in any way that they know how- they'll sing you into the ground; they'll pound you into submission with drums; if all else fails, they'll reach back to the 70's, grab a solo, wrap it up in some Stevie Ray, and deliver it to your front door. But usually, they just win you over with a song. Following a chance meeting, Andreas founders Brian Dahl and Jay Brandow set about building a repertoire of great songs-regardless of genre. What you get, are diverse and varied songs, where the only common denominator is high standards.
In only a short period, Andreas (now complete with Mike Medhurst on drums, Jennifer Lockman on keys, and Adam Payne on bass) has worked with legendary engineer/producer Nick Blagona (Deep Purple, Cat Stevens, The Police, Alexisonfire), participated in festivals, and have built an impressive reputation as an electrifying live band.
Currently supporting their debut EP, Andreas is a rock band that is on the rise.
